Excellent meal in a stunning location. Bar La Vetta. Polenta with mushrooms, Italian sausage with oven roasted potatoes. Great little trattoria with fast, friendly service. The walk up the ski slope, no snow at this time of year, is well worth it for the views...More

I was very much disappointed to take the trouble to go up (on a good road!) to Monte Amiata. There is no view at all, except for maybe a pie of 15 degrees. Awfull high-tech, antennas, outdated chairlifts, rocked down hotels and restaurants, souvenir baracks....More

We had a beautiful day driving up the mountain to reach Mount Amiata cross. The forest is pretty and relaxing. The roads are well maintained and we saw many cars parked along the way as people hiked the hills looking for porcini mushrooms. The forest...More

Monte Amiata, forming the west flank of the Val d'Orcia, is the highest mountain in Tuscany. It's much cooler on the mountain than in the valley, so a nice place to escape the heat in summer. There are several small towns on the mountain, the...More
